NAME

bary - compute weighted sums of points

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

bary [-nt] [-s x y z] [file]

DESCRIPTION

Bary computes weighted sums of a set of sites in Euclidean 3-space, writing them on the standard output. The site weights are read from file if it is specified; otherwise, bary reads from the standard input. A line of input must be either (1) entirely white space, (2) white space followed by a comment (begun with the # character), or (3) white-space-separated weights, one per site.

By default, bary uses the three sites (1, 0, 0), (0, 1, 0), and (0, 0, 1). One or more occurrences of the -s option cause bary to replace the default sites with all the sites (x, y, z) so specified.

The -n option causes bary to normalize each tuple of weights to sum to one. This has the effect of computing barycentric combinations of the sites.

If any line of weights in the input stream contains more fields than the number of sites, bary will, by default, ignore the excess fields. The -t option causes bary to copy all such trailing fields verbatim onto the tail of the corresponding line of output.

EXAMPLE

The command

bary -tn -s 0 0 0 -s 1 0 0 -s 0.5 0.866 0 <<EOF #------------------------------ # x y z aux. data #------------------------------ 1.0 2.5 3.6 58 alpha 0.0 1.0 2.0 37 bravo 13.0 9.2 6.3 69 charlie delta EOF

maps the triples to points in an equilateral triangle in the xy-plane, producing the following output:

0.605634 0.439099 0 58 alpha 0.666667 0.577333 0 37 bravo 0.433333 0.191432 0 69 charlie delta
